country. your choice. >>> we would like to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world to this, the democratic national convention, as charlotte, north carolina. i'm on the convention floor, i'm wolf blitzer. the first lady of the united states, michelle obama, has tonight's most critical job, reminding voters why they liked her husband enough to put him in the white house, and to make the case for giving him another four years. ining us now inrco all of thiweek,nderson cooper, high above the floor. >> our w sws whyhat case is more urgent than ever for the democrat. nesn mitt romney's convention bous. what are the numbers? their convtion tonight, ts let'slook at that very question. we know governor romney got a one-point bounce out of his convention, not so great, about half what the president got four years ago. not a big bounce. where does that leave us? the democrats' opening night two months from a critical election day. doesn't get any closer than that. 48-48. >> the convention will pay tribute to a champion of health care reform, the late senator edward kennedy,
that open new plants and train new workers right here in the united states of america we can reward those companies that build right here and double their exports. we can create 1 million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years. you can make that happen. >> i want to create a future where everyone who wants a job can find a job. where no senior figures for their security of their retirement and every parent knows that their child will get an education that leads to a good job and a bright horizon. and unlike the president, i have a plan to create 12 million new jobs. host: has either campaign in specific on how they plan to create 1 million new jobs? politics is not my area, but from what i have followed i have not seen at all specifically this is going to happen. its romney's plan, one of five. is to reduce the deficit. but it is not clear how it leads to more jobs in a direct way. obviously, overall, a strong quake -- stronger economy and reduced debt leads to a better economic environment. but as you cut contractors, teachers, whatever -- anytime government is cutting spending, c
barack obama president of the united states of america. >> this is america's choice. >>> we'd like to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world to this, the democratic national convention in charlotte, north carolina. everyone here is waiting to hear what bill clinton will say about president obama tonight as well as his own time in the white house. but another speech tonight could make or break the democrats' hope for keeping control of the united states senate. elizabeth warren is challenging republican senator scott brown in massachusetts. coming up in this hour, we'll hear praise of bill clinton from someone you might not expect. >> coming from the republicans, vice presidential candidate paul ryan sat down with cnn's piers morgan to compare the clinton and obama presidencies. the two presidents have not always been close, obviously. our chief national correspondent john king covered the clinton white house for us. >> these two presidents, the former president and president obama are more than at peace now. you may say both men share a little bit of numbers
the world, american embassies and even german and british beamtions are on high alert. united states marines so-called fast teams. teams to secure embassies are being dispatched throughout the middle east to ensure the safety of our personnel abroad in many public squares across the middle east, flags are being burned and embassies are attempting to be entered by some of these protesters. a terrifying map if you think about it it includes not just countries you would expect to experience unrest. countries like tunisia that you would think relatively unstable. that as it at this that that that -- >> jay carney, the white house press secretary says something eyebrow-raising and interesting yesterday when he was asked what the source of all this unrest is. let's listen: this is a fairly volatile situation not in response to united states policy. not to to obviously the administration or the american people. it is response to it a video, a film that we have a judged to be reprehensible and disgusting. that in no way justifies any violent reaction to it, but this is not a case of protest directe
privilege as far as being a citizen of the united states to vote and be part of the process. that is all i have to say. host: frank newport, it sounded like from the comments last night by mitt romney that they were really focusing on from here on out approaching voters who had voted for obama in 2008 and looking to lure them to the romney campaign. is there any way that gallup will be checking that attempt? guest: absolutely straight -- absolutely. we track daily. for a republican to win, they have to pull back in some of those voters. if the same scenario happens this year that unfolded in 2008, obama is going to win again. republicans have two goals -- one is to activate the core republican voters and get them to turn out, which is easier for republicans and democrats, because republicans are more likely to vote. they have characteristics like age and education that make them more likely to vote. the second task is to pull down at 7% margin that obama had over mccain, so they have to come in to become a convert some of those people who went for obama to go to romney, or they were going
-thirds are devoted to foreign investments. maybe this is why romney's returns list the united states of america as a foreign country. you can understand the confusion. romney's blind trust investments also raised eyebrows. romney himself has called a blind trust an age-old rouge. instead, you can give a blind trust rules. but in his 2011 returns, romney didn't have many rules about chinese investments. mitt romney all along has been the candidate who says president obama did not stand up to china. romney has railed against china's trade tactics. >> my own view on the relationship with china is this. china is stealing our patents, our designs, know-how, brand names. they are hacking into our computers steeling information from not only corporate computers but government computers and manipulating their currency. for those who don't understand the impact of that, i have seen it. i have seen it. >> tough talk, right? none of these things stopped romney from allowing chinese investments into his portfolio. his returns show the romney family owning shares of a chinese oil company. romney dumped the
to host this debate. my name a jonathan dine and i'm a libertarian candidate for the united states senate. like many of you, i'm tired of the constant fighting of the republicans and democrats. beating the other team has become more important. america is now on the verge of a financial collapse and both parties are to blame with their wreckless tax, borrow and spend policies. neither party seriously about balancing the budget or lowering your taxes or restoring your personal freedom. for as long as i can remember, republican and democrat politicians offering up solutions. higher and higher taxes. enough is enough. as a libertarian senator, i will stand up for your personal freedom, i'm socially accepting and tolerance. i'm also fiscalally responsible. i'm tired of the wreckless spending and the wreckless earmarks as your senator, i will vote no to wreckless spending, vote no to any legislation where spending exceeds revenue. i will advocate on the part of the balanced budget amendment. the government should live within its means just like the people of missouri. supporting my candidacy m
a family on, good jobs, right here in the united states of america. ssseses when it comes to the health of our families, barack refused to listen to all those folks who told him to leave health reform for another day, another president. he didn't care whether it was the easy thing to do politically. no, that's not how he was raised. he cared that it was the right thing to do. [ applause ] he did it because he believes that here in america our grandparents should be able to afford their medicine. our kids should be able to see a doctor when they're sick and no one in this country should ever go broke because of an accident or an illness. and he believes that women are more than capable of making our own choices about our bodies and our health care. that's what my husband stands for. [ applause ] when it comes to giving our kids the education they deserve, barack knows that like me and like so many of you, he never could have attended college without financial aid. and believe it or not when we were first married, our combined student loan bill was higher than our mortgage. we were so you

[applause] >> it is cold, we have to cheer about something, right? it was a cold, december morning four and a half years ago we told -- we pulled our rental of college students into iowa. we went door to door, for a guy named barack obama. almost nobody in town had ever heard of him. they asked some pretty tough questions. would he stand up for the middle-class? for people like them, not just for those at the very top. they asked us, would he get us out of this mess at -- in iraq? and did he have the guts to take on the insurance companies and reform health care? conversations like this were taking place all over iowa. iowans know the real bill when you see it. they took the measure of this man. they looked him in the eye and you sent him on to be president of the united states. thank you, iowa, for that. a lot has happened since then, and we still have a long, long way to go, but today we can go ba
opposition. overseas president obama restored the reputation of the united states within the community. dialling a and collaboration are once again possible with the return of spirit and trust and good will to our foreign policy. of course, there remains much to do. communities across america and countries around the world, life is too hard for too many people. we see their struggle and also our hearts go out to them. in the coming years our hands must continue to reach out to them. after all that remains to be done and at home and abroad, the evidence is overwhelming. president obama is a leader for america and we faison slaught of some of the most complicated and international challenges to confront any u.s. president in modern times. it is up to all of us to make sure that the american people understand exactly what is at stake. and at risk in this election. with president obama in oval office we can make good progress towards becoming a fairer, stronger, more prosperous america. and a nation adjusted to changing and challenging times, hold it true to unchanging principles. a leader

're going to cut and what we're going to tax to get our treasury in order. but we've got a united states senator who backs up mitt romney and his rate, saying he is very generous. it's all a game. it's all a big game. make no mistake. romney gamed the tax code. he basically picked his own tax rate and his accountants played around with deductions so they could hit the predetermined rate near 14%. would you take it? meanwhile, romney still won't explain the specifics of his tax plan for you and me, americans. >> we bring down rates, we limit deductions and exemptions to keep the progressivity in the code and encourage growth in jobs. >> and the devil is in the details. what are we talking about? mortgage deduction? >> the devil is in the detail, the angel is in the policy which is creating more jobs. >> let's get one thing straight. tax cuts for the rich do not create jobs. this is the top marginal tax rate from 1948 to 2010. you be the judge. it's gone down quite a bit. here's unemployment over the same period. it's very hard to argue lower taxes do anything worthwhile for jobs, but romn

. >> look at the united states. we're thinking all of the states east of the mississippi plus throwing in minnesota iowa, montana, arkansas, louisiana the dakotas nebraska, kansas, we've lost an area -- larger than half the size of the united states. >> bill: yeah. what's left? california, oregon and washington. i mean -- >> scary. >> bill: that is really scary. now all of that ice melts. where does all of that water go? right? >> right. by the way -- >> bill: glug, glug, glug. >> that's in ten years' time that we've lost that much. that's sort of mind-blowing. >> bill: think how many centuries it took to build up the ice. so anyhow, it is frightening but jim inhoff and all of the other -- they don't care. they don't think it means anything. it is just cyclical. it will all freeze again next year. that's the way it works. mmm, man. what a line-up today. congressman chris van hollen, the ranking democrat on the budget committee. we haven't seen him in studio since charlotte. he was there with us in charlott
clock on the convention floor. this is why. the united states pushing that 16 trillion mark yesterday. what does that mean for a president who wants a second term. we'll discuss and dismiss the debt like they do. chris christy said what is wrong with washington? well nancy pelosi. >> she is part of the problem. it is true. listen, any of the leaders are up there if they are not trying to make a difference. >> brian: chris christy sounded off and sang a bit with jimmie fallon. we'll bring it out because you were probably nodding off when he was talking to chris christie. all next for the 2012 election . ♪ ♪ "fox and friends". >> >> gretchen: good morning. i needed that election surge to get me through hump day. i needed that election. thank you for making my day. >> brian: we are wednesday and two more days left of the convention and we'll know here until friday morning. yesterday it was clear, we need more time and we are off to a great start and need more time. >> steve: plus we might need more umbrellas. supper time, it was coming down. >> brian: i didn't notice that. >> gretche
of the united states melted down dramatically. trillions of dollars were lost because the markets did not work properly. secondly, i served as ohio attorney general. why do we need one? i have 1500 people in my office because somebody has to enforce the law. >> i am a colonists. vanist.thinnes i understand it is not the nature of an agency to leave things alone whether they are good or bad. that is part of my concern. that is part of the anxiety. as i have talked about -- to those people who are involved, that is the anxiety that is traded. they feel like whether they are acting in good faith or not, hanging overnd villville their head. >> when you were explaining your calvanist, i hope you are not pointing at me. >> thank you. finally. good to see you again. when you get to me, you know it is almost over. you say in your opening statement that your push for accountability extends beyond mortgage servicing or holding both banks and nonbanks accountable. we had a hearing last week on credit bureaus in particular. i am not sure if you are aware of two pieces of legislation. one would address med
of the united states. it is a job that brings with it a lot of speaking responsibilities and oh, my god, could you see that tonight. first lady tonight, a long, personal, emotionally, frankly excellent speech from michelle obama. chris matthews? >> certainly made the connection, don't you think? i mean, so much of tonight was interactive. it was between her and that audience in the room. i thought the camera work was so important watching this on television. you saw on the faces of men and women, black and white, all different backgrounds, the connection. she was with people. the emotional connection, telling the story of her love affair with her husband. with her life of getting ahead. but there was one big difference than four years ago which just came through in the earlier speeches tonight. it was hope and change, yes, hope and change but not hope and change imaginally overnight. but hope through work and patience and time and effort and then change. i think it was a much more mature look at their own lives as they got there. i'll tell you, i assume most americans watching tonight who have
as though the united states is under attack, under siege. there's a feeling that something is spinning out of control in the middle east and we need to understand it. >> fareed, thank you. jim, jessica. be sure to tune in sunday night, 8:00 and 11:00. fareed has a fascinating special. global lessons, putting america to work. thanks, everyone. >>> we polled registered voters to identify their top foreign policy concerns what keeps you up at night? syria number five concern, afghanistan four, china, three, number two is immigration and the number one concern was terrorism. tonight, the man whose long service as mayor of new york and public persona ever since has been defined by a single horrific act of terror, rudy giuliani. >> the thing that keeps me up at night, probably more than most, is the fear of an attack, probably because i lived through one and had to be responsible for a city during the worst attack in the history. >> put your mask on. >> very hard to tell people in america not to be worried about terrorism, i wish i could say that to him, you shouldn't worry about it. because the

're running to be president of the united states. that's how it goes. and a lot of what you're seeing with the romney campaign right now is when you have sort of cascading failure. you're getting people, you know, tommy thompson said yesterday, why am i going down in polls? what do you think? i'm running with mitt romney. that doesn't help. you start having morale problems, and, you know it can all go pretty bad. the point, tim was making about, about romney's strategy, coming in late. that's a pretty perilous strategy. what obama has done is similar to what the clinton campaign did in '96. they spent tons of money early to define bob dole. by the time bob dole got around and campaigned, everybody kind of had a sense he was, you know, newt gingrich's mini me, basically and it was over for him. >> and then to the question of money, tim, you know, if you look like you're in a really tough spot and things could change with the first debate, a lot of people think that could be sort of a turning point in this race, but do your supporters run to you and say, okay. we need to get him out of
down. charlie? >> charles gagata, thanks very much. >>> while the united states is trying a public relations counter offensive to calm the anger and stop the violence, margaret brennan has that story. >> reporter: good morning to you, charlie. the u.s. government is trying to stop that anti-american violence by buying ad time on pakistani tv to spread the message that it did not endorse the controversial internet video made by an american filmmaker to ridicule islam. >> reporter: it cost the u.s. government $70,000 to broadcast these ads on seven different pakistani tv networks. they feature messages from president obama. >> we re jekt all efforts to denigrate the religious believes of others. >> reporter: and secretary of state hillary clinton. >> the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. >> reporter: condemning the anti-islam movie made by a california filmmaker. the state department is trying to cool anti-american fury that sent thousands of protesters into the streets of pakistani cities this week. it isn't the first time that american diplomats
's relationship it the united states. ambassador john bolton, former u.n. ambassador to the u.n. and fox news contributor joins us now. ambassador, why is this significant? >> i think it shows the influence iran has over the maliki government in iraq and is using iraqi airspace, if these reports are correct, to resupply syria. this is a critical fight in syria for iran. it goes to its arc of hegemony across the region, hezbollah, terrorist group in lebanon, to me it is not surprising that iraq is allowing these flights. not surprising iran would try to use the overflights is supply syria. jenna: why should iraq listen to us? >> i think it is very unlikely iraq will listen to us. i think the administration's decision to pull out combat troops simply allowed iran to increase its influence over the maliki government. that is one of the reasons i'm worried about stability in iraq itself. it was one of the consequences entirely predictable when this withdrawal went forward. jenna: but iran has been involved in iraq and iraqi politics now for a while, ambassador, right? we've seen this before. iran
of the george w. bush term he had doubled the deficit and debt of the united states of america. >> reporter: left-leaning center on policy and budget priorities agrees with that sentiment though president obama has the responsibility and put weight of his office behind policies that will address long-term fiscal challenges. jenna. jenna: still a lot to talk about, right? that number, we'll see if the actual policy is getting something done. rich, thank you. jon: $16 trillion. >>> new questions about iran this morning. concerns that rogue nation may be using air routes over iraq to get arms to syria's dictator who is slaughtering his own people. am bass done john bolton on what's at stake here. >>> plus a dramatic crash landing after a plane loses one of its tires just after takeoff. we'll show you how this one ends. >> the national convention of the democratic party will now come to order!. >> who is mitt romney? the american people know barack obama. >> barack obama will never ignore our troops. he will fight for them. >> when detroit was in trouble, president obama saved the auto industry
of the united states. this is a time where it's easy to meet with some of these folks. ther was one comment from an adviser. he saiif hetth erenhe going have to meet with ten and you're like, well, that's the job sometimes. you know, this doesn't seem like a very defensible position, not to have met with o world leader when it came to the united nations. >> well, i don't want to get into the president's schedule ancertnly is ist fo cleagues at the white house, but i do know when you're the president of the united states, you're always tking to world leaders. it's not just one. in just the last day there ee be a l ofalksithe world leaders. i think that will continue. we've discussed it. i think that these are questions for my colleagues at the white house and we're focused on what we're doing in ohio today. >> all right. speaking of ohio, mitt romney's got a new ad out. i want to play a little clip for and get your reaion it. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle klass families. the differences my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by ho
hispanic governor of texas, some people suggesting the first hispanic president of the united states. do you like that kind of talk? can you handle that kind of pressure? >> no, i'd be lying if i said that's not flattering. of course it's flattering to anybody, but the biggest mistake that i could make or anybody could make in this situation is to believe the press. to believe the hype. >> reporter: castro was elected mayor in 2009, and then re-elected with 82% of the vote. now he's 37, the youngest mayor of a top 50 city in the united states. he's also used to the baby face jokes. one of the funnier things that has happened to you when you first met president obama, he jokingly asked if you were the intern. >> that's right. yeah. >> you being asked to do this speech, is that kind of making up for that jab? >> i don't know. i don't know. but i accept, you know, i always got the age jokes at different points in my career. >> is it still happening? >> every now and then. you know, i'm starting to get the gray hair that i need from my 3-year-old daughter and from politics. >> reporter: this
for the 3 million jobs that are actually vacant in the united states but that people can't get because they are not well trained. so a significant part of the way forward is training and retraining. we have also been in a bit of a stalemate. and the american people are going to decide whether we're going to go forward with president obama or backward. so i think that he's going to ask the american people to stick with him so that the initiatives that have been blocked by an obstructionist congress can actually be cleared. so that we can invest in roads and bridges, which we know if we invest in snificant infrastructure, we can create between 500,000 to 1 million new jobs. >> well, let's talk about -- >> hold on one second. wait a minute. you know that there has been no movement on a number of these programs. and i think there will be after the election. >> well, that's a question i want to ask you. we heard this rousing speech from bill clinton. he talked about how he was able to reach across the aisle and work with republicans on welfare reform, right? but it's sort of like reminding
crackers in the united states senate would have ever voted for it if the pressure had not come from martin luther king and others with the civil rights movement? no way! look at healthcare reform. president obama could have ever got than passed without pressure from nurses and seniors and consumer groups and activist and labor unions around the country. no way! the truth always is, these members of congress are so entrenched that you have to have that pressure from the outside and it was only by building that pressure from the outside on the inside that president obama is able to get the affordable care act passed and yes, it is going to be the same thing with campaign finance reform. do you think these dodos are ever going to vote on their own for campaign finance reform? no, it will take a major movement on the part of the american people and pressure and demands on the part of the american people to get congress to act. so, i don't know. what do you think about this? 1-866-55-press. republicans are trying to say this
committee in the senate. >> they balanced their family budgets only to find out that the united states senate on the democratic control will not even bring a budget plan to the senate floor. people should know that the republican-led house, on the other hand, met its obligations. most significantly it passed a budget to rescue america from a debt crisis. >> this is an election year. you hear a lot of hyperbole. you can't find one sane economist that doesn't say if they don't do something about that fiscal cliff, the raising of the tax rates, cutting of government spending it will not lead to something close to an economic catastrophe not only here in washington and in the united states but worldwide. here's another bit of good news. they're going to come back after the elections, after november 6 in a lame duck session and try to do something about that. thomas? >> michael, we talk about this continuing resolution so it gets us into march of 2013. there's a potential it could go six months beyond that, correct? >> well, sure. i mean, they always like to give a new congress a couple of
